A fictional film world divided into main characters, supporting characters and outtakes: Paula has to prove that she has what it takes to be a main character. She wants a glamorous life with her own storyline - not like her mother, who works as a supporting character in the background. Along the way, Paula encounters contradictions and finds herself on the social fringe - and begins to doubt the story ... THE ORDINARIES is a film about being in the movies: lavishly shot, narratively and visually bursting with ideas across film history – from special effects to the musical number choreography to the score, which was recorded by the German Film Orchestra Babelsberg. The film was shot in Hanover, among other places. One of the main roles (Dr. Cooper) is played by Denise M'Baye who lives in Hanover.

Age rating: from 12 years
